    We use HAProxy to load balance between our webservers. It balances TCP between the machines round robin and leaves everything else to Node.js, leaving the connections open with a reasonably long time to live to support WebSockets and re-use of a TCP connection for AJAX polling.

    HAProxy manages internal and origin load balancing using KeepaliveD. Two small servers host the entire site, never moving about 15% load even during the largest load spikes.

    I use HAproxy primarily for application routing and SSL termination. I also use its logs and statistics to visualize incoming traffic in Kibana.
